Broken Branches by M. Jonathan Lee


What inspired the story

Ah, my first go at the supernatural and a bit of an off-centre gothic novel. I really liked writing this one. The setting was so similar to the types of areas where I travelled to see clients after I left my job to focus more on writing. I liked the idea of trying to spook things up. I think it worked. The main story came from my great great great grandfather, George Lee who once hanged a dog from his tree for being disobedient. When my Uncle Steve researched the family tree we realised that there was a trend for children dying untimely deaths. That’s where the whole curse idea developed from.
